Reviews of Panorama Lodge


"The whole set up of the Cabinet is a home away from home. Both owner are very friendly"

Viwe Ngquba | 3 January 2018

"They must just have more crockery, bowls as it is a self catering. Overall it is really a nice holiday cabinet."

"Great view from the hill"

"The Panorama lodge is a nice family run B&B, at the top of a hill with a wonderful view of the Knysna lagoon.

"The Panorama lodge is a nice family run B&B, at the top of a hill with a wonderful view of the Knysna lagoon. Dieter and Tina are very hospitable and eager to help you with suggestions of things to do. You must have a car as it is too far to walk to restaurants or attractions and the hill is steep. There is a large comfortable communal living/dining room with large windows but the outdoor deck has the best view. Most of the bedrooms are right off the large room. We got the superior suite that is in a separate building from the house and offers more privacy. Other amenities include a small swimming pool, cable TV and wifi. Both the wifi and cable TV needed repair when we were there."

"What a suprise!! Usually when you book from the internet the photos of the accommodation and the actual accommodation is not the same.  Photos on the net always seems better, however, in the case of Panorama Lodge the photos do not do justice to what you actually receive.  The room was great with all the necessary comfort, the location excellent, the view to die for and Tina, Dieter en their daughter like family.  We were treated like it was our own home and not like guests.  I have family staying in Knysna and Tina and Dieter even allowed me to entertain my family on their premises until 01h00 in the morning with the children swimming and the adults having a party next to the pool (and I must say this happened more than once). It was my first stay at Panorama Lodge but it will definitely not be my last.  Tina, you have a wonder family and you and your family made my and my family's stay a memorable one.  Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!

"We were a group of 9 stayed for 5 days.To begin with...we arrived late. Checked in @ 11:30 in the night which is quite unusual. But Dieter was so kind. He gave a warm welcome. Both Dieter and Tina were so good. They prepared breakfast as per our choice. They made us to feel as we are in home. We used to discuss our plan daily with Dieter and Tina and they share their opinion and give a overview of the places. They also provided discount coupons for quite a few places which was really helpful.
A must stay place if you wish for comfort, peace, serenity and feel at home feeling."

(South Africa) Robert McBride | 19 August 2014

"Had a very pleasant weekend at Panorama. Hosts very friendly and helpful. Knysna is really worth a visit as there is plenty to do - walks in the forest, good seafood and much more. Many thanks."

"Great stay. We stayed two nights in this splendidly located B&B. Way up in the hills around Knysna, you get to enjoy a spectacular sunset over the Lagoon from their deck. Dieter, the host, has so many tips of what can be done in the neighborhood that you can easily leave your Lonely Planet home. We felt as if visiting friends again, although this was the first time we stopped here. These hosts have a way of making you feel at home immediately!

On top of that, the accommodation was lovely, spotlessly clean and well maintained. Recommend this place to anyone."


"Simply stunning B&B with incredible hosts"

(Netherlands) Pamela Prior | 9 January 2012

"We stayed at Panorama Lodge between Christmas and New Year, last year, 2011.

"We stayed at Panorama Lodge between Christmas and New Year, last year, 2011.

What struck me the most was not the spectacular view from the breakfast deck, nor the pristine new swimming pool slightly lower than the deck, but the sheer likeability and helpfulness of the hosts, Dieter and Tina. Nothing was too much trouble, and personal recommendations from them were never short, enabling us to get into exquisite restaurants on short notice and make the most of our time there.

From the out-and-about suggestions, to their company whilst relaxing outside on the superb wooden deck overlooking Knysna, a more charming and funny couple I have never met. Together with their daughter Melina, impeccable hosts.

The bedrooms were well decorated, clean and perfect sizes, and the breakfast was delicious. I highly recommend staying here if you travel to Knysna, and I would certainly stay here again if I got the opportunity."


"Wonderful!"

(South Africa) charlotte Willliams | 5 January 2012

"We had a wonderful four-night stay at Panorama Lodge! Dieter, Tina and Melina are friendly and very warm hosts! Breakfast was always great! Thanks so much for having us and making our stay comfortable and enjoyable!"


"Great location"

(South Africa) Noreen Wonnacott | 15 November 2011

"Great location. Quiet and away from main road traffic. Great views. Excellent service from Dieter and Tina. Great breakfast. Thank you."


"Great view, great house, great hosts"

(Netherlands) Klasina Ankone | 7 August 2011

"The hosts of this place make you feel right at home. You can use the living room with the great fireplace as much as you want and the inside of the house is fantastic.

Breakfast in the morning was very good, much to choose from. Unfortunately we were only here a day, but we wished we could have stayed much longer!"


"A home away from home!"

"It was the most wonderful time spent with Dieter, Tina and Melina! We felt at home, as if between good friends. Our daughters played together very nicely. Thank you Melina! The evening drinks on the patio with the beautiful views allowed us to mingle with all the other guests. In the mornings we had the most amazing breakfasts. No request was uncatered for. We received fresh fruit salad, different kinds of toast, cheeses, sausage, marmelade, eggs, bacon, ommelettes, tea, coffee and juice on a daily basis. The lovely room was spacious and clean and had everything

we needed for comfort. It was furnished with a television, a fridge, a small stove, crockery, cutlery, and more. On top of this, we had our own balcony with the most beautiful views. The rooms were also cleaned daily. Dieter, Tina en Melina helped us with tips and interesting facts about the tourist attractions in the vicinity. We even received coupons to get discounted rates. The Panorama Lodge is a stunning place for a holiday, either for a couple or a family. They've got a swingset, slide and a trampoline in the garden for the little ones. The shops are close by.

We said goodbye with tears in our eyes.

Es war einfach eine wundervolle Zeit bei Dieter, Tina und Melina! Wir erinnern uns gerne an die Zeit in der Panorama Lodge und hatten das GefŸhl, zu Hause bei Freunden zu sein! Unsere Tochter wurde von der Tochter der GŠstehausbesitzer rundum glŸcklich gemacht, bespielt und bespa§t. DANKE Melina! In ruhiger AtmosphŠre konnten wir die Seele baumeln lassen, haben die Abende bei GetrŠnken, die man in der Lodge kaufen kann, bei einer wundervollen Aussicht auf der Terrasse mit den GŠstehausbesitzern und anderen GŠsten genossen! Dort wurde ebenfalls das FrŸhstŸck serviert, welches keine WŸnsche offen lies. TŠglich frischer Obstsalat, verschiedene Toastsorten, KŠse, Wurst, Marmelade, Honig, sowie Speck, Eier und Omlette, Kaffe und Tee, sowie SŠfte. Das liebevoll eingerichtete Zimmer war sehr gerŠumig und sauber und hat einfach alles geboten, was man braucht um sich wohl zu fŸhlen! TV, Herdplatten, KŸhlschrank, KŸchenutensilien, einfach alles da, so dass man sich, wenn gewŸnscht auch selber versorgen konnte! Dazu hatten wir eine tolle eigene Terrasse mit wundervollem Ausblick. Das Zimmer wurde tŠglich gereinigt und durch die Kuscheltiere unserer Tochter liebevoll hergerichtet! Durch Dieter, Tin aund Melina wurden uns alle WŸnsche von den Augen abgelesen! Wir bekamen tolle ertvolle Insider-Tips um unseren Tag interessant und facettenreich gestalten zu kšnnen. Dazu konnten wir durch zahlreiche Voucher auch noch Geld sparen. ZusŠtzliche Informationsunterlagen lagen dazu noch reichlich aus! Die Lodge ist eine wundervolle Mšglichkeit, als Single, Paar oder Familie mit Kindern jeglichen Alters Kontakte zu schlie§en oder auch alleine die Seele baumeln zu lassen! Von dort aus kann man wunderbare TagesausflŸge tŠtigen oder einfach mal einen Tag auf der Terrasse verbringen. Sportliche AktivitŠten sind ebenfalls in der nŠheren Umgebung problemlos mšglich. Einkaufsmšglichkeiten sowie Restaurants umfangreich vorhanden. Sogar Schaukel, Rutsche sowie Trampolin fŸr die kleinsten sind im Garten vorhanden! Wenn man mal Hilfe braucht, sind Dieter und Tina fŸr einen da und kŸmmern sich in jeglicher Hinsicht! Ein rundum toller Urlaub und TrŠnen beim Abschied sind garantiert!"

We would definitely recommend their establishment to friends and others. "

(South Africa) Mr Redelinghuys | 12 December 2012

(Australia) G Gomes | 12 December 2011

"The lodge offered us the perfect stay in Knysna and we wished we could stay longer. In fact, we could live there... close enough to town, yet away from it all, warmly decorated and with a fabulous view. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Definitely recommended."

"The lodge and its location do justice to its name. High up on a hill, the visitor gets a panoramic view of the surrounding area - The Heads, the lagoon, rolling green hills with houses peeping through the foliage trying to compete for space with the lush and leafy surroundings.

Panorama Lodge was exactly what I was looking for after a hectic 2010. Quiet, peaceful and safe. The scenery of the area - Fisher Haven - is really heaven-like. Breathtaking, serene for lack of better words. Local attractions such as The Heads, Thesen Island, Leisure Island, Noetzie Beach, etc. are accessible from Fisher Haven where the Lodge is located.

I felt safe during my morning and afternoon walks and could walk undisturbed and with utmost peace of mind. The staff and the owners are very helpful and could assist us with information regarding local attractions. The lodge and its owners exude cosiness, warmness and friendliness.

I have already recommended the Lodge to friends and colleagues.

"We stayed at Panorama Lodge for two nights. Dieter and Tina were the perfect hosts and provided the perfect setting for a short stay. Their knowledge of the local area was matched by the care and consideration they took to make sure that we were able to get the most out of the time we had. The accommodation was excellent and to a good standard. Breakfast on both mornings was good and plentiful and always served with a smile. The only slight downside was the weather but there was little that could be done about that. I would not hesitate to stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants to relax and have a great place to discover the delights of the area.

"Great"

(South Africa) JACO | 9 March 2010

"It’s one of the best lodges in Knysna and the Garden route. Will certainly return sometime in the future. Enjoyed the stay a lot, friendly hosts."

Deiter and Tina were very helpful and gave us all the help needed to make our stay a happy and memorable one. Knysna and the surrounding area is very beautiful and a car is needed to get about. Being away from the town area is definitely an advantage, and Panorama Lodge is just a few minutes drive from the town area where free parking is available. The substantial breakfast gave us a good start for the day. My wife and I had a great stay and we recommend this establishment for anyone requiring a peaceful and reasonably priced home away from home."

"A very cold and rainy weekend in September we arrived at Panorama Lodge and walked into a beautiful room lightened by a warm welcome, murmuring fire and a cup of fragrant coffee. This was our second visit to this establishment and again it proved to be the right choice: after three years the atmosphere is as friendly as it was and the facilities are even better. We spoke about the events that happened in our life in three years and wanted to know what happened in the life of our hosts. Their child wanted to show us her pictures and toys. We were told about new developments in Knysna, new restaurants, places that we have not seen before – we followed the advice and enjoyed every moment of our stay. Waking up in the morning, seeing the everlasting lagoon, and knowing that you are on holiday while a delicious breakfast is waiting and a new fire has been started early to keep us cosy - on holiday but at home – this is how we felt at Panorama Lodge! We promised to come back."


"Good value and hospitality"

(South Africa) Tony and Carmen | 21 September 2008

"There is a wonderful view, comfortable rooms and overall a pleasant stay made all the more pleasurable by the hospitality afforded us by Dieter and Tina, who made us feel welcome and gave good advice on what to do, see and where to eat in Knysna. Very nice breakfast buffet."

(South Africa) Ms Mather | 14 July 2008

"This compact self catering apartment offers all you need for a comfortable stay. The Rangs are a friendly and welcoming family and the views from the place are amazing. Higly recommended!"


"We really felt at home"

(Germany) Mrs Knoth | 7 April 2008

"We (4 adults from Germany) spent three great days at the Panorama Lodge and would have liked to stay longer. Dieter and Tina are great hosts and we loved their lodge, the barbecue, the great breakfast and their ideas about what to do and see in the surrounding area. Next time we will stay longer."

"What a lovely place! We really enjoyed our short stay at Panorama Lodge.

You cannot ask for friendlier hosts at ANY place within/outside South Africa. We only needed a place to stay for one night as we were in Knysna for a wedding. We returned at around 2 o clock in the morning and standing in front of our door I realised that we lost our key.

I was sure that even the friendly smile from the greeting that we got earlier that day would have definitely disappear on waking Dieter and Tina (the hosts and owners of panorama) at that time in the morning.

Still..., the smiles and friendliness still came..., flowing like water from and abundant stream! I was amazed by the AWESOME breakfast that Tina served us 4 hours later!

I am an Auditor and I am exposed to different kinds of overnight places/lodges/hotels and I can honestly tell you that better service you will find no where...

"Die Panorama Lodge mit den Besitzern Tina und Dieter hat meine Erwartungen voll erfüllt.
Zunächst verfügt sie über ein angenehmes Ambiente und zuvorkommende Gastgeber, die uns Insidertips gegeben haben, die ein Erlebnis waren. Außerdem findet man im Haus Ruhe und Entspannung. Das Weinangebot ist vorzüglich und preißlich vertretbar. Ebenso stimmt das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis bezüglich des Frühstücks.
Wer Entspannung und Gemütlichkeit sucht, ist hier am richtigen Ort.
Ich wünsche Tina und Dieter eine gute Zeit und die Erfüllung ihrer Wünsche sowie allzeit zufriedene Gäste aus aller Welt.

Herzliche Grüße
Herbert und Gabriele aus Köthen (Sachsen-Anhalt/Deutschland)

The Panorama Lodge with the owners Tina and Dieter fully fulfilled my expectations. It has a very comfortable ambience and the friendly and helpful hosts gave us some insider tips for things to do and see. One finds some quiet and relaxation time in this house. The wine on offer is excellent and affordable. The breakfast is good value for money. I wish Tina and Dieter a good time and the fulfillment of their wishes as well as always satisfied guests from all over the world.

Sincere greetings Herbert and Gabriele out of Köthen (Sachsen-Anhalt/Germany)"

"Firstly, we were moved to a "NICER" room for free, because the room was not booked. They also have good knowledge of the surrounding, that help with planning your daily activities. Now that will surely make anyone go back. The family makes you feel right at home, no fake mannerisms there. What you se is what you get! I will recommend them to anyone and that is why I rate them 5 stars. Not because they run after you when you shout, but for the real family feeling away from home. Thanks guys and see you in December!"

"This B&B is situated in the area Fisher Haven, and gives the guests a magnificent view over the Knysna lagoon. The rooms are nicely decorated and the bathrooms are fresh and clean. Every morning a delicious breakfast is served.

The friendly and open host family, Dieter, Tina and Melina, is available all the time and helpfully informs the guests about the possible activities and sights in the area. The garden and the hosts provide a very child friendly atmosphere.

We, a family of six persons between 8 months to 60 years old, highly recommend Panorama Lodge.
